Boise Police Chief Bill Bones Announces Retirement
09/16/2019 4:08pm

Former Boise Police Chief Mike Masterson will serve as interim chief until a permanent replacement is found, according to the City of Boise. In his tenure as chief of the Boise Police Department, Bill Bones has outfitted his officers with body cameras, put more officers on bikes and on foot, and moved the department toward a precinct-based approach to policing. After 27 years, he will hang up the badge on Thursday, Oct. 24. During my career, I have gone through the highs and lows of serving as a police officer. As a young officer, BPD struggled with a lack of trust and the community questioned our professionalism, Bones wrote in a letter. Since then I have been part of the evolution of a police department. One we built on the shoulders of our past officers to create not only a safer city but a leading model for professionalism, transparency and community trust across our country. Bones started with the Police Department in 1992 as an officer. In his time with the department he oversaw three divisions: patrol, criminal investigation and internal affairs. He stated in his letter that he is excited to go see the world with his wife once hes officially retired. Former Boise Police Chief Mike Masterson will serve as interim chief until a permanent replacement is found, according to the City of Boise.

'Sea of Shadows,' Co-Produced by Boise Film Crew, Tells a Harrowing Tale
09/14/2019 12:11am

The film is harrowing, heart-breaking and absolutely gripping. The beautiful visuals lay the base for a winding and emotional journey. The plight of the vaquita is complicated. The nearly extinct breed of porpoise is being driven to illegal fishing operations, but at the heart of that is greed, corruption, crime and economically blighted communities. A Boise film crew, Wild Lens, helped produce a documentary on the critically endangered vaquita, there are believed to be roughly 10 surviving vaquita left in the world. The movie, which National Geographic and Leonardio DiCaprios company Appian Way helped produce, opened in Boise at The Flicks the evening of Sept. 13. The film, Sea of Shadows,follows journalists, non-profits, Mexican government officials and non-governmental organizations as they try to save the remaining vaquita. Some of those efforts were fatal to one of the remaining members of that species. The film is harrowing, heart-breaking and absolutely gripping. The beautiful visuals lay the base for a winding and emotional journey. It starts in San Felipe, Mexico, a gulf community with a population just shy of 20,000. There, a number of fishermen illegally throw out gill nets to fish for, among other things, totoaba, an endangered species of fish. The reason totoaba are so coveted among fishermen are the swim bladders, an organ that fetches a hefty price in black markets in Chinawhere the organ is used in traditional medicines. The film uncovers a ring of crime lords helping ship these swim bladders to China, which has connections to Mexican drug Cartel. It is essential viewing for the environmentally minded. One of the films producers, Matt Podolsky of Wild Lens, crafted another film, a documentary short, titled Souls of the Vermillion Seas,which also covers the vaquitas rapid path toward extinction. A screening will take place during First Thursday in October at Jump.

Grousing Over Groceries
09/11/2019 5:05am

It seems like there isnt accountability anymore. Id hate to see the Co-op go in a direction without people being aware. A deli associate at the Co-op, Forrest Martsch had only worked at the grocery store for approximately 6 months, but had already formed a strong bond with Deli Manager Melissa Craft, whom she said at one point offered to take care of her young son during one of Martschs shifts to help lighten the load. Melissa was just one of the best bosses Ive ever had the experience of working with, she said. When the Co-op fired Craft on Aug. 30, Martsch quit on the spot, as did another of Crafts subordinates, Molly Malone. According to emails obtained by Boise Weekly between Craft and Co-op Director of Human Resources Emilie Schossow, tensions rose between Craft and her employer because of failure to work respectfully with the new Culinary Director Jin Yang, and demonstrated insubordination. Craft, however, said her firing had more to do with disagreements over policy under the Co-ops new leadershippolicies she said depart from what Co-op employees and customers have come to expect. It seems like there isnt accountability anymore, she said. Id hate to see the Co-op go in a direction without people being aware. As a direct result of Crafts ouster, two employees have quit, but the trajectory of the grocer under its first CEO, Michelle Andersen, has resulted in the elimination of two other positions: those of the Employee Communications Handling Officer ECHO, an employee-management liaison job held by Jerry Jarrett, and the relatively new position of training coordinator held by Tracy Labraaten. Jarrett still works for the Co-op, having been rehoused across two departments. Labraaten said her job was meant to standardize and improve skill sets among employees at both Co-op locations, but added she got little administrative support under Andersen. Eventually, she was fired. I was told it didnt have anything to do with me, but she had decided to restructure the organization and they no longer needed me, she said. I was in love with what the Co-op stood for, and I never imagined this would happen here. For Jarrett, the elimination of the ECHO position was a blow to transparency. In an email, he wrote that the position provided an important link between Co-op leaders and workers, and he willingly left that role rather than risk being fired for openly voicing the concerns of employees. Soon afterward, the position was eliminated entirely. Management wanted someone more to give the idea that
